Question about 2005 Volvo S40

1 Answer

The inner fuse box seems to be under the glove box in my 2005 s40. How do the plastic clips work that hold the carpet in the way to get to the fuse box. I'm afraid to just pull them.

Hi, I have a peugeot 206 2005 diesel and the windscreen washers aren't working. They don't even make a noise so i assume the fuse has blown with the recent cold weather? Does anybody know which fuse it is?...

The fuse box is inside the glove box (on passenger side dash board).
Open the glove box and you'll then see a small box on the side with a Plastic screw on it. Turn the screw to 90° to open the fuse box. Which fuse it could be for washer motor i really don't know as peugeot service manual has not lost any word about fuse plan.

Poorly electrics on volvo s40 after valet - what do I do

Check your fuses, if all are operational make sure they a seated properly. We have this type of problem, but live on a dirt road and the vibrations sometimes unseat the fuses. An easy way to check is to see if these problems go away if; when the car is running you give the fuse panel, under the glove box, a solid whack with your open hand. This is a temporary fix we utilize three of four times a year.

How to change a mini fuse? The ones in the yellow plastic box.

Hi, yes these fuses can be difficult to remove. On some cars in the box by the fuses, you will see a little plastic tool like small tweezers plugged in like the fuses.It is used to grab hold and pull the fuses out.If there is not one, I would get me a pair of needle nose pliers and grab hold and work it back and forth very easy as not to break it off. they are tougher then you think though. This is the best way to go.Good Luck,

How do I change brake light bulb on 2005 Nissan Altima

The first objective is to figure out which bulb you need. I had to replace the bulb for the largest light which was a Sylvania 3157. The next objective is to remove the dang plastic carpet holder/net clip. Recognize that it is a two part piece. Use a flathead screwdriver for leverage. Pry the cap off by levering the screwdriver in the slot on the holder. Then go behind the carpet and pinch the plastic pin still holding the holder in place. Next,pry off the while plastic pieces from the two bolt/nuts you'll need to remove (see manual). Remove the nuts and give the two screws a push from the inside so you can see how the whole light casing comes off. Pry it off from the outside. On the backside of the bulb holder, turn bulb base counterclockwise and gently remove. Pull bulb upward and replace. Do not touch glass on new bulb with your fingers (wear non-powdered rubber gloves). Make sure the bulb snaps in place. Follow these instructions in reverse. Smile, you just learned something new and saved yourself some easy money.
